The Ondo State University of medical science Teaching Hospital has stepped up its technology driven capacity to enhance service delivery to the people.
The modern technology being adopted by the UNIMEDTH is aimed at taking health care services to the doorsteps on residents of Ondo state.
The initiative, health wise foundation is in collaboration with XMedia Group with the sole aim of solving health challenges of the people.
At a press conference to unveil the plan in Akure, the Chief Medical Director of UNIMEDTH, Dr Oluwole Ige said the facility had always been responsive to the health needs of patients and was prepared to take services to a higher level such that every patient would always have good story to tell about the facility.
According to Ige “we want to make patients the ultimate and ahead of everything we do in this hospitalsuch that their experience will be palatable and also have confidence in UNIMEDTH”
The CMD said further, “we want everybody in this environment to know that when they have issues, all they need to do is to get themselves here and their problems will be solved”
Dr Ige added that the essence of the partnership was to ensure that quality healthcare services were rendered to the people as government alone could not fund the health sector.
Analysing the new concept of service delivery, Mr Tunde Lawrenson of Xmedia group said it would address among other things the problem of funding in the health sector because the initiative is self sustaining.
He noted that the concept would also involve taking health services to public places like churches, mosques among others.
